Thomas W. on his personalized Macronutrient plan: “There has been a multitude of changes since I started following a Macro plan. Going into this experience I was focused solely on weight gain, but in the end much more has been gained. I have a better understanding of what my body needs and more importantly what it doesn’t need. By embracing the change in diet and intake there have been noticeable changes on the scale, body composition, and performance/recovery after workouts.”
Elena’s Story – August 2017
Elena is one of my personal training clients who went from wondering what to do in the gym to a focused athlete with a training program designed just for her and her goals.
She says, “Lauren is an amazing trainer. I have been working with her for 5 months now and my health has improved and my anxiety has decreased. My body looks better than I ever thought it could, and at 42 years old I went from not being able to do any pull-ups to being able to do pull-ups every day. I would definitely recommend her as a trainer.”

Eric’s Story – November 2016
Eric’s journey to health began in July 2016. He discovered the paleo diet and lifestyle while watching a segment on Dr. Oz. He then went out a bought a few books to learn more about eating a whole foods diet close to how our ancestors ate. A few weeks later, he joined the gym to get back into fitness.
Until this point, Eric grew up in a family where food was the focus! If he had a date, he had to eat dinner with his family first, and then have a second dinner while out! After retiring from being a firefighter, he became more sedentary and slowly put on the extra pounds, occasionally doing the Atkins diet with limited success.
Since July of this year, Eric has lost 55 pounds from following a paleo diet and working out at the gym 4-5 times per week. He says he feels amazing, has more energy, and his health numbers have all returned to normal. His doctor was amazed by the change.
Eric continues to eat a paleo diet while making room for occasional treats like popcorn at the movies.
